The night opens with Taylor Swift making her first awards-show performance in almost three years, and tributes promise to provide memorable moments.
The award was presented to Taylor by Lenny Kravitz.
The "Boo'd Up" singer hit the carpet in a menswear inspired suit before hitting the stage to perform her hit single during the big show.
I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee.
The singer racked up wins for favourite pop/rock album for "reputation", tour of the year, and artist of the year.
She concluded her speech: "Thank you guys so much I appreciate it".
Swift kicked off the show with a performance of "I Did Something Bad", while Cardi B - who won three honors - picked up the night's first award, favorite hip-hop/rap artist, which she dedicated to her daughter.
Host Tracee Ellis Ross also showed her support for voting, wearing an "I Am A Voter" shirt. Watch her emotional acceptance speech above.
